A pure linux alternative to vmware is Xen but I still have to try it out.
yep thats probably the best idea...with vmware no hard drive partitioning is required it just maked a virtual machine file or however much size u want it to be..mine are usually 5-6 gbs depending on the distro then u just run the virtual machine as a second pc..u can delete the virtual machine whenever u want and try whatever distro u want..but if u want a multi boot system get partition magic and make another ext3 partition then install your desired distro on there..im running windows xp on my master drive and my other drive is running(with vmware) fedora4,ubuntu,suse and free bsd
